ANNOUNCEMENTS

We have added two volunteers to the site - Heather and Tiffany! Thanks for your dedication to the site, ladies! We appreciate your help!

We are happy to announce that we have brought linkys back to the tours. Instead of posting your links to your reviews in the comments, please use the linky for the specific tour (when available). We are in the process of adding these to all tours (except closed ones), so if there isn't a linky, then please do use the comments to link your review. Thanks!

Nov/Dec Tour: Jane Was Here by Sarah Kernochan (LIMITED COPIES - International Tour)

Jane Was Here
by Sara Kernochan
Publication Date:  June 2011
Grey Swan Press

A mysterious young woman called Jane appears in a small New England town. She claims a fragmentary memory of growing up in this place, yet she has never been here before in her life. Searching for an explanation, she arrives at the unthinkable: that she is somehow connected to a beautiful girl who disappeared from the town in 1853. Is she recalling a past life? Jane becomes convinced of it. As she presses onward to find out what happened in this town over 150 years ago, strange and alarming things begin happening to some of the town's inhabitants. A thunderhead of karmic justice gathers over the village as Jane's memories reawaken piece by piece. They carry her back in time to a long-buried secret, while the townspeople hurtle forward to a horrific event when past and present fatally collide.

A little bit about Sarah Kernochan:

Sarah Kernochan received early acclaim for her Academy Award winning documentary Marjoe. She then recorded two albums for RCA as a singer-songwriter. In 1977, her first novel Dry Hustle was published. Returning to film, she scripted the the film Nine and ½ Weeks, Impromptu, Sommersby, What Lies Beneath and All I Wanna Do, which she also directed. She received a second Academy Award in 2002 for her short documentary Thoth. 2010 brought the re-issue of Dry Hustle as an ebook, and a third album of songs. 2011 brings us to Jane Was Here; Sarah’s first love and teenage ambition – a novel about reincarnation.

NOTE:  We have limited PRINT and EBOOK copies available for this tour.  If more bloggers signup than we have copies available, we will put everyone's name into a randomizer to determine who will be on the tour.  It is very important that you indicate if you must have PRINT or EBOOK.  If you can do EITHER, please let us know that as well.  Since we have limited tours open to international bloggers, I would prefer to leave the ebook copies to those bloggers, if at all possible.  I will post a calendar once we know WHO will be on the tour. 

  • Tour Dates:  December 12 - December 26
  • Tour signups will close on September 30
  • This book will be available in both PRINT and EBOOK formats.
  • To sign-up - please leave a comment with your name, e-mail address, blog name, and format preference (print/ebook).  
  • This tour is open to USA bloggers (print) and international bloggers (ebook only).   
  • If you haven't already done so, please be sure if you have filled out the BLOGGER SIGN-UP form (only needs to be filled out once, unless you have an address change)
